Great numbers of red throated hummingbirds can be found in North Mississippi, in late Summer and Fall, during their migration to Mexico and Central America. Adorably territorial, they will bravely guard their feeders against their cousins, until the increasing numbers force them to share the resources to store their energy for migration, in harmony. This piece celebrates our Southern visitors as they squeak and dive-bomb each other in a veritable dogfight at the feeders.
